Treat Yourself to Vein-Free Legs this Holiday Season

Holiday parties and gatherings are right around the corner. Even those patients who wear tights or panty hose with their party attire want their legs to look and feel their best before those big nights. Don’t let unsightly spider veins put a damper on your self-confidence this holiday season. Eliminate your spider veins with schlerotherapy today.

If you’re not sure if you have spider veins, take a close look around your knees, ankles and thighs. Spider veins can even appear on your face. Spider veins are thin, broken looking blood vessels that appear near the surface of your skin and are red, blue or purple in tone. Spider veins may even appear more prominently in the winter months as summer tans fade.

Some patients are more inclined to develop spider veins. They may run in your family, begin to appear as you grow older, or appear as your lifestyle changes. Pregnant women or others who experience dramatic or sudden weight gain are prone to spider veins as more pressure is put on their legs. If your job requires you to stand quite a bit during the day you may also become susceptible to the development of spider veins, especially around your knees.

The good news is that spider veins are merely cosmetic concerns and do not put your circulation or blood flow at risk. However, if you are tired of seeing spider veins, it’s important to know that there are treatment options available to safely and easily eliminate them.

Schlerotherapy involves using a very small needle to inject a saline like substance directly into the tiny vein. This causes the vein to stop functioning, or die, and then be absorbed into the surrounding skin tissues. Once absorbed the vein will disappear from view.
